Buy a Commercial Property

A Detailed Guide for Buying Commercial Properties

The process of searching for offices for sale or rent  is undoubtedly different from buying a residential property. Therefore, follow the steps given below to invest in offices for sale:

Document Preparation-forbuyers

Document Preparation

This step is critical for buying commercial properties in Emirates. In the UAE, you must get documents attested if the company is based internationally. Buyers must particularly arrange the following documents:

  • Copies of your valid passport
  • Valid board of resolution
  • Signee letter of authority
  • Valid incorporation certification
  • Signatory’s passport copy
  • Valid MOA

Building for Sale—Obtain License

Free Zone or obtaining a license from the DED (Dubai Economic Department) is the next step for buyers. The setup fee will, however, be determined based on:

  • Different activities your business is licensed to practice
  • License type
  • Location
  • The name on the trade license


It’s said location is everything and we couldn’t agree more. Our company has dedicated area real estate specialists. Thus, we can suggest the best areas for property buying based on your business activities. We cover all your needs — hotel apartments for sale, warehouses, storage spaces, and plots for sale.



Get Financed

Once you find the perfect investment property for your business setup in UAE, the next step is financing. All in all, numerous local lenders in and across the UAE can help you finance your commercial purchase.

Thus, if you need assistance with financing, we are here to help. Our team can connect you with a suitable mortgage lending entity at a competitive market rate.


Needs and Requirements

Hence, before you finalize your purchase, make sure that the investment property meets your business requirements. Thus, see if it matches your criteria. For example, parking space, fitted spaces, power voltage capabilities are some essential aspects.
